Adults can shift attention to different regions of space without moving the eyes, that is, covert orienting of attention. Covert orienting implies that information processing may occur for stimuli in peripheral locations. The purpose of this chapter is to review evidence that in the first 6 months of life, infants are able to shift attention throughout space covertly. These studies show that there is an increasing efficiency from birth to 6 months with which infants shift spatial attention… CONTINUE READING
